Citizens for Public Justice: inspired by faith to act for justice

CPJ's Advocacy Toolkit

Have you ever been faced with injustice, but have felt powerless to do anything about it? When it comes to changing something in the political sphere, we may do nothing because we think that politicians are too busy, that our issue may not be important compared to other issues, or that we aren’t knowledgeable enough to speak out.

This toolkit is designed to show you that you have the power to influence the legislative process. It is a matter of knowing where the access points are, whom to contact, and what to say. This toolkit provides useful information on different methods of advocacy, when to use each, and how to get your voice heard most effectively.
